Washington Elopement Pricing

Discover a way to feel something more on your wedding day.

The majesty of Mount Rainier appearing behind a layer of clouds. Fog layered in the PNW Trees. The the roar of the ocean.

Elopements give you the ability to feel more, slow down, and refocus the day back on yourselves, so you can have the chance to create a stress free, crazy cool experience to celebrate your next chapter in life. 

That's going to be one helluva story to share with your loved ones!

a day we'll never forget

Your planning starts with hiring the right photographer.

What makes me different?

Hi, I'm Alexandria, a candid/documentary-style photographer who is inspired by human connection and stories. As a photographer, my passion comes from celebrating moments, big and small. For a day, I get to celebrate you by giving you a chance to slow down, and let your love shine in those moments. I intentionally shoot more candidly rather than posing you all day. I'm involved in your planning process because this helps with the final output of images! I help direct portraits through prompts and activities, but ultimately I want you just enjoy the day and have the images remind you of those feelings for many years to come. <3 

What also sets me apart is my love of the outdoorsI follow Leave No Trace Principles. I am always aware of how weather is impacting areas at certain times of the year. I can tell you that even though it's spring in the lowlands, you won't have the same experience at 5,000 feet. I can also tell you that watching tides on the beaches is important so we can safely access different areas! I can also tell you, light also behaves a little differently in a forest vs in the mountains and I take my landscape skills + previous years in the big wedding industry and pair them together for amazing photos of you!

Your Elopement will be a once in a lifetime memory.

Slowing down so you can experience it, is essential. Let's not rush from thing to thing!

In my experience, to truly soak the day in, you'll want to create a day full of relaxation, adventure, meaningful moments and breath taking sights. Your anticipation will start to build as you get ready at your cute vacation rental you built. It gets even more exciting when you and your partner see each other for the first time in your wedding outfits. And then we head off to say your vows with an incredible view and soak in the rest of the day doing whatever your little heart desires. Maybe you want to hit up multiple scenic spots? What if you decided to stay out after dark and experience whatever mother nature throws your way for sunsets or stars, and then end with a twinkle lit dinner?


 You're going to want that all documented!

Damn friend, that's so freaking cool.

What others have said!

-Tasha & Gabe

"Alexandria is a DREAM to work with! She goes above and beyond in every single step of the process and makes sure that your day is perfect. She has the best smile and radiates the most positive energy.
Thank you so so much Alexandria! We were pinching ourselves the whole day and cannot believe how beautiful our sneak peek photos are. She captured us perfectly and we could not have made a better photographer choice! From the first meeting she felt like a friend."

- Camille & Tom

-Sam & Michael

"She's accumulated an abundance of knowledge of where the perfect elopement locations around WA state are. Plus, she has important contextual info about these spots that's often missed and we really appreciate her attention to these often overlooked details as it saves us the stress of dealing with such issues on the wedding day."

"As soon as we found Alexandria, I knew we hit the jackpot. Not only was she immediately kind and understanding during our first Zoom call, but she made every step of the process so easy. From getting to know us as a couple, to scouting locations (and sending us IN DEPTH options), to sending us a Wedding Day Bible to walk us through all the steps along the way (OMG it was AMAZING), to just being the best day-of, Alexandria was a dream."

This is what it's like working with me!

Right away during our zoom interview with her we immediately felt at ease. Her friendly energetic personality absolutely shined and we knew right away she was the photographer we wanted. She was unbelievably helpful during the planning process, as we were getting married in Washington, but live in Michigan. We also had quite a few considerations when it came to our location, and she was so attentive to those details. She was extremely communicative leading up to the day of our wedding which was very reassuring. Wedding day she was phenomenal! She explained her thoughts and ideas so clearly they were really easy for us to understand and see her vision. She worked so well with our family, and blended in so naturally, I don't even remember her being there taking photographs during the ceremony. After the ceremony we had a small barbeque, then went on a hike just her, my husband and I. We had a blast hiking with Alexandria! She was so fun to work with, time absolutely flew by.

-Stacey & Scott

I can not say enough good things about Alexandria! We were very picky when choosing our photographer - expected as my husband is a photographer! We really wanted someone to capture our day, not just pose us for photos. Alexandria went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for. After looking at probably a dozen photographers we came across Alexandria, loved her approach that she stated on her site and wanted to talk to her more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do we need 5+ hours for an elopement?


Q. DO WE NEED 5+ HOURS FOR AN ELOPEMENT?

Yes!! Let me ask you this - how do you want to experience your elopement day? Slow and luxurious? Or fast and blurry? In my experience most couples once my couples saw everything laid out for their elopement day, we started at 5 hours and went to 2 full days depending on what they wanted out of their experience and where they wanted to get married. My goal is not to rush you through anything and allow you to actually enjoy what you're doing. From getting ready and feeling all those feels as you see each other in your wedding attire to, to hiking and adventuring, to ending your day under a magical twinkle lit dinner with your family, most couples want to experience it all and want it all documented. Some couples even choose to celebrate themselves on one day with an adventure and then have a more traditional, small experience with their family the following day at a venue so they can get the best of an elopement and the best of a more traditional wedding for an epic hybrid celebration.

Q. Can I invite my family?


Q. CAN I INVITE MY FAMILY?

Of course! The beauty of your day is you get to invite exactly who you want. If that includes some of your family- great! If that includes some of your close friends, great! Invite who you love :) Here is one of my resources on how to include your family, whether attending or supporting from afar! Please keep in mind not all outdoor spots can handle larger group sizes however, so I strongly suggest to keep groups including yourselves under 15.

Q. do you limit the number of guests?


Q. DO YOU LIMIT THE NUMBER OF GUESTS?

In my opinion, Elopements are typically the couple and your few pals to sign your marriage certificate. If you have more people you want to include I strongly suggest keeping it below 15 people. Otherwise we won't be able to fit in any particular area as a group, I won't have room to move to capture all the things, and we would trample delicate vegetation. My couples and I practice leave no trace, and group size plays into this!

Additionally it will put a lot of extra logistics on you as a couple! And honestly, you're eloping to avoid that stress all those logistics bring, right? The more guests you have, in my experience the more stressful it is. I've noticed the sweet spot is about 2-6 guests max. 

Q. Do you reccommend get married on a weekday?

Q. DO YOU RECCOMMEND GET MARRIED ON A WEEKDAY?

Yes friend!! Our natural areas have exploded in popularity over the years. Weekdays give you a better chance at privacy, not to mention ability to find parking, bring any guests along, and participate in any other activities you may want to do. You are purposefully choosing a smaller experience to feel all the feels so I would venture a guess you don't want tons of people around as you say your vows.

Q. Do you still photograph in Rainy weather?


Q. DO YOU STILL PHOTOGRAPH IN BAD WEATHER?

Yesss. Honestly I love weather, because you never know what you're going to get and it can create some epic things for photographs.  Since we are in the PNW, you will always have a chance for rain, no matter if it's the middle of summer. Let's go with the flow as nature is unpredictable! That all being said if the weather is dangerous, we will definitely talk about an alternate plan!

Q. Do you reccommend Getting ready Photos?


Q. DO YOU RECCOMMEND GETTING READY PHOTOS?


1000% yes. Beyond the pretty images, its a time for you to "warm up" to me! Everyone gets a little nervous when a camera comes out. By allowing me to photograph your getting ready, you're getting used to me taking photos of you and directing you before the ceremony and all important portraits! You'll feel much more relaxed during the super important moments having a camera around!

With elopements, I encourage you to think differently. Because you're intentionally choosing amazing elements for your day to make it more special and feel all the feels, you're probably choosing intentional things for getting ready too. Maybe you rented a gorgeous vacation rental, or maybe you two cozy up in a reading nook together, or maybe you are getting ready at a trailhead and doing a first look around your vehicle. All this is SO unique and different from hotel big weddings. It's the way you are choosing to spend your morning! We could easily spend 2 hours documenting getting ready!

Q. DO you only photograph on Trails or do you photograph at venues too?

Q. DO YOU ONLY PHOTOGRAPH ON TRAILS OR DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH AT VENUES TOO?

HECK YES! I love venues too! Adventure looks different to everyone - if you're wanting more of a traditional experience on smaller scale, I'd love to photograph at your venue! You definitely do not have to hike. Or maybe if you like hiking, you could hike alone and then celebrate later at a venue with your group. I love it all. Washington has so many beautiful spots that feel like you're surrounded by nature too! Check out my resource here on Outdoor Venue Ideas for WA State!
